A friend of ours in Dayton said “you’ve got to try this pizza.” She was right. Marion’s was fun from the get-go: people watching its wide variety of clientele, the huge number of celebrity photos on the walls, the ‘old Italian courtyard’ décor and atmosphere, and ordering at the counter.
We were instructed to order one 9 inch pizza per person. David and I were pretty sure would could have just split one, but we obliged. With two toppings, mine came to $8.00. Now, don’t expect to get pineapple on your pizza at Marion’s. They have only “manly” toppings, from pepperoni to anchovies…and onions to ‘ham and sauerkraut.’
The pizza came out piping hot…and was square! It had been sliced into nearly bit-sized pieces – easy to do because there was no big fluffy bread crust rim. In fact, Marion’s pizza crust is nearly wafer thin and crispy. Now I’m a big New York style fan, but I have to say: what a great way to eat pizza – making it easy to share, easy to handle and easy to carry on conversation. The flavor was great, too. And no, I couldn’t eat the whole thing, but David finished his.
Marion’s was a lot of fun. Just one warning – bring cash – because that’s all they take.
